the paul harvey farmer ad better. >>> and governor chris christie wants everyone to shut up about his weight. >> shut up. >> tonight, reverend al sharpton is here to give the governor some tips on becoming the biggest loser. >>> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. the confirmation hearings of cia director nominee john brennan got off to a rocky start today. human rights protesters from the activist group code pink interrupted the hearings before they even started. john brennan is the architect of the obama administration's drone warfare program, which includes targeted killings. once the hearing got under way, there was another disruption. the protester was escorted out. then there was another. same thing. seconds later there was another. and then another. finally, chairwoman senator dianne feinstein broke up the proceedings. >> we're going to halt the hearing. i'm going to ask that the room be cleared and that the code pink associates not be permitted to come back in. we've done this five times now and five times are enough. >> the chaos underscored the cont
. >> chris christie's top strategist tells the new jersey star ledger he hasn't called me. will we see christie giving his blessings to geraldo, a candidacy by geraldo, or is that just fat chance, michelle goldberg? what do you think? >> i would be surprised because chris christie, for all my disagreements with him, does seem to love the state of new jersey. but i'm not sure how many chris christie's endorsement matters compared to fox news' endorsement. should he run, it will be just another step in the consolidation of fox news and the republican party. >> michael, you know, name recognition. he could probably raise a little bit of money. he can handle the media. he is an advocate for people in a sense. journalistic credentials a little shaky at times. would he be a potential winner, do you think? >> you know, ed, i think geraldo is a smart guy. i do his radio show sometimes, and, you know, i've talked with him. he knows issues. he knows policy. he is pretty moderate. he is pro-choice, which a lot of people may not know yet. now, that may kill him in a primary, even in new jersey. re
governor chris christie. let's take a look at his appearance on david letterman. >> i've made jokes about you, not just one owere to. not just ongoing here and there, intermittent. >> i didn't know it was going to be this long. >> joking aside, christie has an innate ability to know the room and be the regular guy. and isn't this what the republican party is lacking right now? i mean, they've got an identity crisis. why not start with the regular guy next door? is he the best bet they have? >> to some extent, the problem is how does he get through if he runs for president, how does he get through that republican primary. the party right now is dominated by a clear faction on the right that thinks their policies are the right ones for the country there is no negotiation, no compromise. whether that's on immigration, whether that's on taxes, whether it's on social issues. the problem that they ignore and the groups in the tea party in the farr right ignored is the country has moved. it's moved more to the middle. it's moved in a more progressive direction. and they don't want to change. and
something i don't usually do, which is vent. who are the takers and who are the makers, ed? is chris christie a taker? are the people on the jersey shore takers? not makers? are the people in connecticut and on staten island who were devastated by sandy takers and not makers? the congress of the united states, over the last couple months, just voted about 60 or 70 billion dollars to repair the devastation in the new york metropolitan area through new jersey up to connecticut. and i guarantee you that a lot of people who enjoyed the jersey shore or a lot of people who lived on staten island might under other circumstances find a message like ken cuccinnelli's somewhat appealing about the takers in american society, about how the people who become dependent on government. but then when disaster struck the whole rest of the country through the congress weren't takers or makers. they were givers. because this is one country and this is a place where people get together when necessary. now, that was one event and one disaster. but the whole idea of what federal programs are about are not
